Empathic design, design for all, exhibition and interaction, all meet together in an exciting and involving one week summer school in Piemonte, Italy. Creative and innovative concepts will develop an interactive exhibition on “traveling with (dis)ability” with a huge collection of pictures and video collected on several trips around the world on a wheelchair. Students will begin the workshop by experiencing personally travelling with a wheel chair, in Turin and Piemonte. Then, with the help of the faculty will begin the creative process for the exhibition.

The non profit organization “Rotellando” is our main partner. It aims at promoting and encouraging independent travel experiences for people with disabilities. Fabrizio Marta (aka @rotex), president of this organization, is personally involved in a continuous story-telling about his travels around the world. His journeys are documented with digital media and short text in a worldwide famous blog hosted by Vanity Fair. Rotellando is now in the process of creating an interactive exhibition about this engaging experience aiming at creating awareness and generating positive conversation. Fabrizio Marta, will be present in person during our workshop.

A 100% immersion in the astonishing countryside of Piemonte at Ca’ Mariuccia www.camariuccia.it where vineyards and nuts trees portrait a green and calm landscape.
